Most complete tyrannosaur fossil in Southwest excavated in Utah

Tyrabbisaur foccil found in UtahPaleontologists have completed the excavation of a 76 million-year-old tyrannosaur fossil in southern Utah. With approximately 75 percent of the dinosaur's bones preserved, the fossil is the most complete tyrannosaur skeleton recovered from the American Southwest.

The fossil took a total of five weeks -- and roughly 2,000 to 3,000 people-hours -- to excavate, three weeks in May and two weeks in October.

Ancient sea turtle reveals pigment-based survival trait at least 54 million years old

Turtle 54 million years old Scientists have recovered beta-keratin and muscle proteins from the remains of an ancient sea turtle hatchling, proving modern sea turtles' pigment-based survival trait emerged at least 54 million years ago.

The turtle specimen was originally recovered from Jutland, Denmark, in 2008, and is representative of the Tasbacka danica species, which lived during the Eocene period, between 56 and 34 million years ago.

Recently, scientists were able to recover preserved tissue from the turtle remains. Biomolecular analysis revealed the presence of beta-keratin and muscle proteins, suggesting sea turtles have had dark-colored shells since at least the beginning of the Eocene.

Nobel prize in physics awarded to 3 Americans for discovery of gravitational waves

gravitational waves

Three American physicists have won the Nobel prize in physics for the first observations of gravitational waves, ripples in the fabric of spacetime that were anticipated by Albert Einstein a century ago.

Rainer Weiss has been awarded one half of the 9m Swedish kronor (£825,000) prize, announced by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm on Tuesday. Kip Thorne and Barry Barish will share the other half of the prize.

A simulated voyage to Mars: Crew emerges from isolation

Simulated voyage to Mars ends after 8 monthsA NASA-backed research crew who have been cooped up in a Mars-like habitat on a remote Hawaii volcano since January have emerged from isolation.

The six-member group was part of a study designed to better understand the psychological impacts a long-term space mission would have on astronauts.
Data from the simulated voyage to Mars "will contribute to the future exploration of Mars and the future exploration of space in general", science officer Samuel Paylor said on Sunday.

Farewell Cassini: Saturn spacecraft makes fiery, final dive

Cassini makes final, fiery diveNASA's Cassini spacecraft disintegrated in the skies above Saturn on Friday in a final, fateful blaze of cosmic glory, following a remarkable journey of 20 years.

Confirmation of Cassini's expected demise came about 7:55 a.m. EDT. That's when radio signals from the spacecraft — its last scientific gifts to Earth — came to an abrupt halt. The radio waves went flat, and the spacecraft fell silent.

The Sun Just Fired Off A Massive Flare, And It’s Headed Toward Earth Right Now

Solar flare

It’s one of the biggest solar flares in years, and it’s coming this way.

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured images on Wednesday of the most powerful flare recorded since at least 2008, when the current solar cycle began.

The space agency said radiation from solar flares “cannot pass through Earth’s atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground.”
